Update – 9 September

In line with government guidelines, we are now back in the office but with reduced access, hours and staff numbers to allow for social distancing.

We are sending out Music Medals certificates and medals when one of our team is in the office. We hope to have sent out all outstanding certificates and medals – for results confirmed from 16 March –  by the end of September, so that we can then resume normal service in October.

We would ask that you do not send anything to us by post, as our time in office is limited and our main focus will be on sending out certificates and medals.

Change to Music Medal certificates

As of March 2020 we are withdrawing Music Medals from the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and certificates will no longer carry the Ofqual logo. This change will allow us to make important improvements to Music Medals in response to feedback from teachers and learners. The deadline for submitting an entry to receive a regulated certificate was 22 December 2019, with video and results submitted by 31 January 2020. Results submitted after this date will receive our new non-regulated certificate.

Apart from new certificates, we are continuing to offer Music Medals in their current form with no other changes.
